Embroidered Samplers


These embroidered samplers, chosen from the Museum's collection of more than one thousand samplers, represent work from the seventeenth through the nineteen century that was made in the United States, Mexico, Western Europe, and China. These works, often handcrafted by young girls, are arranged geographically.
